Ness Weir

Major refurbishment works are underway on the 200 year old Thomas Telford-built Ness Weir at the head of the River Ness on the Caledonian Canal.

Part of the project will involve installing 10m long steel sheet piles down through underground obstructions that have been encountered on the Caledonian Canal south-east embankment between Dochgarroch Lock and the Ness Weir. There will be an increased level of background construction noise at Dochgarroch from Tuesday 7th November whilst these works are carried out. The pile driving will take place from 8am to 6pm. It is anticipated that this important work will take up to 5 days to complete.
